Lawmakers Look To End Triple-Dipping By State Pensioners

May 6, 2013

Many state lawmakers are looking to pass legislation that would bar state pensioners from “triple-dipping.”

The House and Senate have both unanimously approved separate bills to close a loophole that allows the practice.

Retired state workers are currently allowed to return to their jobs for up to 95 days per year.  Bill sponsors say many get paid for their work, collect their pensions, and still file for, and collect unemployment.  Over the past three years, some 638 state pensioners have reportedly collected some $2.77 million in unemployment through the “triple-dipping” loophole.

Support for the legislation is widespread, but the finalization of the bills is being held up due to confusion over a potential technical conflict with federal law.
